Color Tattoos, Powder and Nude Lipsticks // Priceline Haul

2- Priceline Haul- Maybelline and Rimmel
Another sale, another $50 spent on makeup. I always feel better about my slightly unnecessary spending if I tell myself that I can do a haul and make a blog post about it so here we are! Priceline had 50% off Maybelline as well as a 'Buy two, get one free' deal on Rimmel so I made use of the sales to stock up on a few more 'Color Tattoos', get my hands on the cult classic 'Stay Matte Powder' and try out some nude lipsticks from the new Kate Moss collection.

70 Barely Branded  //  45 Bold Gold  //  60 Silver Strike
I bought a colour tattoo eyeshadow a few months back and love the formula of it, although it rubs off quite easily until you wait for it to dry completely. These colours are so nice and a bargain when they're half price!

004 Sandstorm
I just had to pick up this classic after my usual setting powder decided to explode in my makeup bag and leave me with a very shiny face (and a very time consuming clean-up).

 I am still desperately trying to find a nude lipstick that actually suits me and when I saw that there was a new collection in the Kate Moss lipsticks, I had to give them a try. So far 45 doesn't make me look like I'm lip-less so we might be onto a winner!

Bondi Beach // Explore

What Caitie Did Bondi Beach Blog Post
On Sunday, Tiarney and I decided to go on a mini roadtrip (about an hour and a half away) to Bondi Beach for the afternoon. After taking a couple of wrong turns, we arrived and miraculously found 4 hours free parking right on the beach so we were stoked. We got out of the car and noticed some markets set up right next to the beach so we headed there first and wandered around, then set up for a picnic on the grass overlooking the beach. We wandered around for a while before heading back to the car.
We only then realized that we forgot to put a ticket on the windscreen so I was super relieved to find that I hadn't gotten a fine and literally 10 seconds after we jumped in the car, the ranger walked past checking the cars- talk about good timing!
Bondi is such a beautiful place and although it can be busy (especially on weekends), the people are friendly, the views are great and the general vibes are so nice. Hope you enjoy seeing a few photos from the day! x

We found a crepe stall and wanted to split one but I wanted homemade jam and Tiarney wanted nutella so we compromised and had both!

5-Bondi Markets Necklace Stand
These necklaces were so gorgeous but they were about $80 each and therefore way out  of our budget.
6 - Bondi Picnic Food
We grabbed some lunch from a fish n chip shop and after sitting down and having seagulls steal our calamari and chips while we set up the blanket, the food was more than slightly disappointing and we really wished we found somewhere else to buy food.

8 - Bondi Picnic Deep Fried Mars Bar
Our first time trying deep fried mars bar! It looked gross and if the batter was nicer, it would have been quite yummy (although extremely rich)

I bought these cool reflective sunnies from the markets for $30

An Ode to my Childhood Favorites // 90s-00s Nostalgia

Friday, August 07, 2015
1- Nostalgia Blog Post- 90s Toys
Hey Guys,
Recently I was out in the shed grabbing something for my dad when I (in true Caitie fashion) got very distracted and somehow ended up browsing through my memory stuff. Some of you may be thinking 'Why on earth would she keep her memory box out in the shed instead of in her room?', and that, my dear readers, is because instead of the typical shoe box or perhaps drawer, I actually have 3 crates full of mementos (as well as a drawer in my bedroom). I am probably one of the most sentimental people I know and that results in me keeping A LOT of crap from my past. 
Anyway, I ended up going  through some stuff and slowly collected a pile of toys and such from my childhood that I think other people around my age might be able to remember from their own childhood. 
I could do so many posts as a nostalgia series and as I was taking photos for this post, I kept on thinking of more things that I was obsessed with when I was younger, but alas I decided to just keep it to the things that I still had tucked away. Let this be an ode to a few of my 'favorites' as a kid.

Viewfinder- I feel like these were a staple in most households and I am devastated that I cannot find my original one (I actually think it might have even been my Mums when she was a kid?), but I did manage to find the newer one, with the original films.

Gameboy- I was OBSESSED with my gameboy when I was about 12 and these games were some of my favorites. We had two between my sisters and I and they have been sitting in the shed untouched for about 8 years and no word of a lie, one of them not only turned on (albeit low battery) but worked just like I remember it!

Polly Pocket- Again, a huge obsession for me throughout most of my childhood. I was so upset when we moved house and every single one of my polly pocket sets went missing, so a few years back Bryce tracked a bunch of them down online and surprised me with them for valentines day (much better than a bunch of flowers I think). The purple 'shop' one was my favorite (on the right).

Microbabies- My cousin and I used to play with these for hours on end. From memory, they basically just cry and move their legs up and down until you use the little bottle to feed it (or work out that you just need to press the button on its mouth, so use a skewer once you inevitably lose the bottle). I believe they used to have micropets too?

The original Sims- Okay, no matter how many new versions EA games comes out with, NOTHING will beat the original. It had an absolute fabulous soundtrack (here's an 8 hour long video in case you need a refresher ;)), the 'Goths' were always ringing the doorbell, and there was a total of about 10 combinations for how your Sim could look. Oh, and I would ALWAYS make a family where I name all the sims after my friends. I would literally go through stages of playing this 8 hours straight everyday for a week, and then not touch it for months...there was no in between.

My first mobile phones- The silver one was my first ever phone that I got in year 5 for when I caught the bus home from school. I had $10 credit which genuinely lasted me an entire year because I didn't use it at all, and the battery lasted about 3 weeks. The pink one was a present for my 11th birthday and I truly thought it was the most advanced, coolest thing I had ever seen.

Hacky Sack- I mean, need I say more? An absolute staple in any kids school backpack in my opinion.

Pet Rock- I think this particular one was from a project that I had in year 6 when we all made pet rocks and then had to document it's adventures. As you can see, mine had a fall while doing something dangerous, hence the head bandage. I used to look after eggs too. I would just draw faces on them and then 'look after them', carrying them around with me and using the furniture from other toys to make them bedrooms. I didn't find out that you are supposed to boil them until I had already smashed about 3 and kept making a huge mess on the carpet.

Man, I can think of so many more things that I loved when I was growing up, that I unfortunately no longer have- Tamagotchi, Tazoos, and Beanie Babies, just to name a few. 
Hopefully these photos had you reminiscing on the days of The Spice Girls and Furbies as much as it did for me!
